Christmas Visits

I can't believe I'm so far behind with my blogging!! Camp woke up on Monday with a fever and was pretty pitiful all week. He was able to perk up in time for Christmas, thank goodness! Here's my attempt at playing catch up....

We spent last weekend in St. Augustine with my dad and Meri. My sister Charlotte and her husband and children were there too! We had a great time and like always, Meri outdid her self in the cooking department!! We are always so spoiled with her tasty cooking.

We arrived on Friday and Camp was very interested in my Dad and Meri's Christmas decorations.

This Santa, Mrs. Claus, & Elf move!

The Dickens Village...

It didn't take Camp long to discover his Christmas present from my Dad and Meri. He wandered off into their room and found it!

He was quick to learn how to push the button to get him movin'!

It's soo cool! It even has a cup holder!

Charlotte, Paul, Carl, & Violet soon arrived and we enjoyed tasty chili and yummy desserts!

I chose the pumpkin pie with candied pecans on top! YUM!! Meri even had a beautiful German Chocolate Cake too......Adam's favorite!

On Saturday, Camp played around on his "truck" and had so much fun being able to ride up and down the driveway and cul-de-sac.

Adam, Camp, and I headed downtown to enjoy the sights.....


We made a stop at my FAVORITE candy shop in the whole world! I got a cup of chocolate peanut butter ice cream.....mmmm!!


We also toured the campus of Flagler College. In all the years we've been going to St. Augustine, we'd never walked through. It's such a beautiful campus.....so much history!


After our sightseeing adventures, we headed to the Conch House for an afternoon snack....

Conch Fritters and a Strawberry Pina Colada!

Although the weather was chilly and windy, we opted to eat outside because we couldn't pass up on this view!

We got back to my Dad & Meri's and Camp enjoyed playing with his cousins Carl & Violet. Violet was the biggest help!! She was the best babysitter and Camp really enjoyed her company.


Then it was time for dinner.....
Meri made a turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, dressing, and cranberry sauce. I'm still dreaming about this meal! It was perfection and everything was HOMEMADE. She spent all day in the kitchen and her efforts sure paid off!! YUMMY!

Time for presents!!

Charlotte was really excited about her flip flops!! :)


On Sunday we all headed to a Winter Wonderland.

They had adorable little gingerbread houses to play in.

Camp had an absolute blast!

He and Adam also went on a train ride.


What a fun time! At night time they have snow and Santa....we'll just have to go back next year!

It was so nice to spend time with everyone!

Thank you for sharing a portion of your Christmas Holidays with us. Your pictures are wonderful, especially the ones of Camp with his new four-wheeler. He' a real sport. Daddy
